Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dip

When I think about the Superbowl, I think about wings. When I think about wings, I think about blue cheese dip! So for my Superbowl themed post today I have decided to share with you the recipe that my coworker Ali and I whipped up. Here's what you'll need:

1/4 lb (4oz) of crumbled blue cheese - I used the Buttermilk Blue from Roth Kase
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar - I used white balsamic solely because of the color.
2 tbsp chopped scallions
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Lemon juice from 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

First step is to make your base of the sour cream, mayo, worcestershire and balsamic vinegar.

Be sure to taste the base before adding the rest of the ingredients. Depending on the sour cream and mayo that you use, you may have to add a touch more vinegar. Once you're happy with the base, add in the chopped scallions and parsley.

After that is mixed in nicely, add the crumbled blue cheese.

Be sure and taste taste taste while making this dip as everyone's palate is a little different. I really like a lot of blue cheese, so I added even more blue cheese that what our recipe calls for. Then add the salt and pepper and squeeze in the lemon juice.

And there you have it! A delicious and easy homemade blue cheese dip! We grabbed some of the buffalo flavored chicken meatballs from our meat department and had quite a yummy snack.

If you end up with leftover dip after your Superbowl festivities, you can turn it into a blue cheese dressing just by adding some buttermilk.

I hope you all find this recipe useful and tasty! Until next time, eat, drink and be happy!
